DJ SAMRAI (2001 AUSTRALIAN DMC DJ CHAMPION)
Here is a brief interview with DJ SAMRAI ...
Who or what inspired you to become a Battle DJ ?
It was a natural inspiration, I've always wanted to be a DJ, but didn't realizethe depth of it, I think the first person I witnessed was your self, I saw KC in Central Station Records, and all these people were crowding around, didn't know who the hell this guy was, but then I watched a video witch had all these guys skratchin, so I immediately wanted to be apart of that!
What/ when was your first battle ?
1999 NSW DMC, I did pretty bad, but it was like 5 months after I had touched a turntable, I came third so I was stroked.
What are the current titles you hold ?
1999 NSW DMC 3RD
1999 NSW ITF 3RD
1999 AUSTRALIAN ITF = 3RD
2000 NSW DMC 1ST
2000 AUSTRALIAN DMC 2ND
2000 NSW ITF 1ST
2000 AUSTRALIAN ITF 3RD
2001 AUSTRALIAN DMC CHAMPION
Do you prefer the DMC Format of Battling or the ITF format and why ?
As you can see from the above, I don't do well in ITF, I love both but I have more bad luck when I attend an ITF, I feel more power in DMC like more control, ITF involves a lot more strategy.
What International Turntablists do you look up to ?
I prefer Aus doods, like KUYA, BONEZ, and KC, but internationally ? roc raider, david, q-bert, prime cutz.
W.A had a 14 year old who was one of the youngest DJ's to enter and he came 3rd, but now you're the youngest ever to win an Australian title, what do you think about that ?
Nobody gives a crap!
How often do you practise and for how long ?
Every morning and night, 1 hr in morning, and bout 3 hrs at night.
What did you think of the standards of the Comp this year ?
Pretty high, still believe I'm not the champ until I beat the champ! we all know who that is???hahaha
How do you think you will go in the World Finalsthis year ?
dead last? haha
Is there any other DJ's from other countries that you are looking out for ?
Plus-1 from the UK
Any tips for the upcoming Turntablists ?
Be prepared to loose badly, than be prepared to win with amazement !!!
Finally How does it feel to be the new Australian Technics DJ Champion ?
Still hasn't sank in, a lot more phone calls and interviews than expected, but I still have the same boring life I had before I won??? DEJAYING DOESNT PAYTHE RENT!!!
On the International Front, USA who has taken out the World Titles almost every year for the last Decade had their Finals on the same date in San Francisco last Friday. DJ Klever from the allies has managed to win the title again, with DJ Precyse of Chicago (the New York regional champ) placing second and DJ Infamous, also of the Allies placing third. This year they decided to have a well know celebrity "Ice T" to host the event in conjunction with mind-blowing performances by DJ Swamp, DJ Craze and A-Trak, and Roc Raida and Total Eclipse of the X-ecutioners. Bet you can't wait to get the Video !
Judges were Shortkut, Roc Raida, Total Eclipse and Swiftrock.
Klever will represent the US in the DMC/Technics 2001 World Championship on September 22nd and 23rd at the London Apollo.
